TSM Photo Bugger inherited the lead early and made the most of it, overpowering the field once on top and capturing Friday's harness racing $22,500 Preferred Trot at The Meadows.

Mike Wilder hustled TSM Photo Bugger toward the front, and when Sharp Edge jumped it off while dueling for the lead, the 5-year-old SJ’s Photo-Rewarding Wink gelding dominated the rest of the way, scoring in 1:54.2. Break The Bank K, the 2010 Breeders Crown 3-year-old colt trot winner who was returning from an absence of nearly 16 months, got a good tightener by finishing second, 5 lengths back, while Southwind Voltage was third.

In the companion feature, the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Pace, Crossthreaded made it two straight with a sharp first-over victory in 1:52 for driver Brett Miller, trainer Bruce Riegle and owners Roy Kohl and Anna Coe. Cams Van Go was second, 4-3/4 lengths in arrears, with Spring Break third.

A 4-year-old daughter of Towner’s Big Guy-TM’s Miss Hot Shot, Crossthreaded now boasts career earnings of $246,470.

Wilder drove four winners on the 15-race card while Greg Grismore enjoyed a three-bagger.
